TMWWBK – November, 25 2017

Last Saturday Giancarlo and Ivano played a colonial match using Osprey's TMWWBK rules system.

Ezio prepared the landscape in which ther are also some wild animals and the effect is very nice

 

The scenario was an ambush in which Giacarlo’s men (Zanzibar slave merchants) have to attack a German colonial column in the middle of the jungle. German colonials are lead on and painted by Ivano.

Zanzibar tribal units start immediately the attack running against Ivano’s Germans



 Ivano detaches the cavalry moving it to intercept one of Giancalo’s unit



 The enemies are close and Ivano deploys his regular troops to form a line




 Unfortunately for Ivano, Zanzibar’s warbands arrive to the back of the line. The fight continues for two turns but Ivano’s troops are forced to be disbanded




 Giancarlo launches his units against irregular German troops but, even if only with four miniatures,  this unit resists



In the meanwhile, Ivano recalls his cavalry trying to reach and destroy Zanzibar tribal troops but without success




The match ended with a Zanzibar victory: 9 points against 4

Below I posted some details of the fantastic miniatures painted by my club’s mates.
Ivano’s masterpieces …





… and, of course, Giancarlo's miniatures

  1. Terrific looking table and Ivano is, indeed, talented with the brush. The German colonials are my favorite. Elephants too!
